Hello, Jack, you there? Sean Penn seemingly encourages ‘cyanide salts’ for Trump, Twitter lets it go
“Mr. President. How about this ‘recalculation:’ Have you considered cyanide salts from an ampoule? May well be a road worth your exploration. A mercy for man & country that would make your ‘boys’ proud,” the ‘Mystic River’ star tweeted on Tuesday.

Twitter has a policy against promoting “suicide or self-harm,” but his tweet has remained untouched by the social media platform, something critics have called out in their own tweets.
That's the key. Use words they don't know like "ampoule" and you can slip through the censors. Huzzah! Mr. Penn.— Sherry Glaser (@SherryGlaser) January 5, 2021
Twatter not flagging this one. 😡 https://t.co/51wWwONU2C— Sharon Steinawoman (@slsteinman2) January 6, 2021
Penn has been a staple on networks like CNN during the Covid-19 pandemic thanks to work through his charity. In his tweet, he appeared to reference the recently leaked audio from a call between Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger through his “recalculation” reference, as well as the Proud Boys when he refers to “your boys.”
Penn is only the latest Biden-supporting celebrity to reject the Democrat’s numerous calls for “unity” in the wake of the contested presidential election.Also on rt.com Let celebrity culture burn: Hypocritical movie stars and politicians break their own Covid-19 advice while shaming the rest of us
Last week, actor and comedian David Cross directly responded to a Biden tweet saying it’s “time to unite, heal, and unify” by saying, “f**k that. I want blood.”
Penn’s rhetoric against Trump, however, is nothing new. He’s called the president a “fuhrer” and “demagogue” in the past and accused him of being guilty of “the murder of 100’s of thousands of Americans.”
Portrait of a Führer frenzied. Now, Gods most caramelized kabuki mask of a man spends his remaining weeks kicking, screaming, and harming others. May his cries for attention lead him to halls of detention. He is less lame duck president than 9 year old bully-brat on angel dust.— Sean Penn (@SeanPenn) November 7, 2020
Had it only been his histrionic man-child narcissism, he’d have been a punchline prissy president. It’s his sociopathy & murder of 100’s of thousands of Americans & his vainglorious crew of smarmy sycophants that will define him in infamy. That’s my last tweet on this demagogue.— Sean Penn (@SeanPenn) November 16, 2020
Like many of his celebrity cohorts, he’s also attempted to tie Trump and the Republican Party to Russia, calling them the “party of Putin” in October, but providing no evidence to back up his statement.
Republican leaders have given themselves a lot of slack as they’ve fallen into the “party of Trump.” The reality is that they are the party of Putin. Trump is just the brand. He’s the salesman, the vessel, who sold them prurience as patriotism.— Sean Penn (@SeanPenn) October 21, 2020
